Not all remaining setup files are useless, sometimes their removal will break an uninstaller or an upgrader that needs the left over setup files to remove the old version before installing an updated installer. The main problem with all these cleaners is you are trusting the wisdom/sense/expertise/good intentions of an unknown person (the developer) to decide what is useless/harmless to remove. Developers of these tools, especially the paid ones have vested interest in appearing to remove more than their competition, in the race to do that they can end up removing files needed by some operation, or is immediately recreated upon reboot but may end up being recreated in a less than optimal fashion like a badly fragmented hibernate file moved to a slower portion of a hard drive, or just result in wasteful excess writes of windows re-creating the deleted files.
I have even seen just cleaning the users %temp% folder has destroyed one programs uninstaller where the programs developer knew windows did not naturally clean the users %temp% folder unless forced to manually so they wrongly assumed they could store uninstaller in a subfolder of the %temp% folder. Cleaner developers cannot assume even the %temp% folder is safe to fully clean! Trimming down the contents of the system drive is an EXPERT operation and should not be entrusted to developers who cannot possibly know the intricacies of literally every other windows PC on the planet. If you are not a windows computer systems expert and use one of these tools and your system survives and maybe you save a few gigabytes of space, consider yourself lucky as you will have just won a medium value lottery!

For me, that kind of cleanup program is no longer necessary. Those are too brutal for SSDs. I leave the maintenance to Windows Automatic Maintenance Center.

I use Crap Cleaner (with C) on my Windows-10 and never had a problem caused by this App. Even the Free version allow us to choose what you want or doesn't want to clean. Also, IObit Advanced SystemCare is still better!

I agree with Sean the GUI is horrinle, looks like it was thrown together without much thought. Also very little control and no information about what has been done, not to mention that there is no way to rollback any changes made. There is a potential for this software to do some serious damage to your system if you don't know what you are doing. I'll stick with Kerish Doctor which is much better, does more and safe to use. Glad I tested it on my test rig and not my daily driver.

Mark,
I've been using this program for several years and never had a problem with it deleting important files. All of these disk cleaners do essentially the same thing -- KCleaner, CCleaner, Kerish Doctor -- and each also has some non-overlapping file deletions. Are they necessary? Probably not, as most of these files are soon recreated. It would be nice if at least one of them handled tasks that really would free up space such as compressing the explorer index database, but I haven't found one that does.

Mark, I could care less about the GUI. Every one of your other points are good ones. However, in options/settings you can see what is being cleaned by default, and you can add to or substract from this as you consider best.

Win OS's are wasteful systems because they operate on TEMP files from start of every session, therefore, deleting them is useless, they recreate themselves the moment you reboot. Furthermore, deleting the tiny TEMP files will not increase the storage at all, the win OS's record in 2k or 4k increments of data bytes as the sectors are designed that way for fast access of data. If you have SSD drive, you may be doing more damage than good. On average, 5-10GB of space is wasted no matter how you store or clean the HD, it is the nature of the OS system.

I'd politely disagree... I have Windows VMs, a couple of Windows tablets, a miniPC etc., all with a minimum of apps installed [use portable apps on added storage when/if needed], & the entire C:\ partition has between 10 & 18 GB used. No way there's 5-10GB wasted space on those. Of course I do clean up garbage, unneeded files after Windows updates etc.

RE: temporary files, many are never reused, so they will grow in number if you never clear them. That said, *usually* nothing bad will happen if you ignore them either. Personally, I tend to clear out garbage, delete restore points etc. before performing an image backup so the archives are as small as possible to take up less storage, take less time to transfer to NAS etc.

Wipe out Win XP from the list of supported systems. The setup does not start under XP at all. It may be possible that the program itself does run under XP when transferred from Win 10 installation (as an example), but the setup file surely does not. And I have no Win 10 at my hand.
Ye, someone still prefer XP. Don't mind, child. It's forever.

Go to the product page linked above [under "Homepage"], click the download button, click the Zip icon for Kcleaner to get the portable version -- maybe that will work (?). [I'm not at my PC so can't fire up an XP VM to test - sorry.]

Vladimir, use portable version on WinXP

how to get the free license?

charles tunis, Open the Read Me file. Click on the Buy Pro, which takes you to the web page. Close the Web page and copy and paste the license information from the Read Me file into the opened registration information in the program.

Thanks for this giveaway, but in my opinion, this program is horrible. Installation was easy, with an ultra basic gui. Because auto mode warned that detected items will be deleted automatically, I started the program in manual mode. It did a scan and proceeded directly to cleanup. No confirmation asked, no info about what was deleted, no way back. Desinstalled asap.

Sean, I don't think that it actually cleans, until you click clean. I went into manual mode and then looked at the expert information, which shows the files to be deleted. I did the same again, and it showed the same files, so it looks like the clean button needs to be pressed to actually delete those files.

Correction, then you click on the appropriate cleaning option on the right.

Reply   |   Comment by Rick_S  –  18 days ago  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (+3)

Update to my previous comment: it is possible to deselect groups (only groups) of deletions, but only in advanced mode. This means the risk of bsod or windows crashes is greater for "standard" users.

Sean, pour faire que l'analyse il faut utiliser l'option Expert

Reply   |   Comment by Pensee Desalpes  –  17 days ago  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (-1)

Rick_S, in manual mode, the only option is "Clean", which I pressed, and the cleaning process was performed without further warning. And by the way, after desinstallation of the program and restarting my PC, I noticed that my WLM contacts file (contacts.ecb file) had been deleted !!! Hope there will not be more surprises...

Although this is a 'Lifetime offering, with No updates' I can't help but notice (in the Features) "Automatic update within the current branch (3.7.x)" when this offering is for the 3.8 stem.

JayUU, blame inattentive copy and paste see https://www.giveawayoftheday.com/kcleaner-2/ was correct and then https://www.giveawayoftheday.com/kcleaner-3-7-1/ was actually 3.8.2 and not correct phrase. https://www.giveawayoftheday.com/kcleaner-3-6-6/ was also correct.
